Can you believe that we are mid-February already!! We are almost halfway through Sale-a-bration!
Luckily we are still casing the SAB catalogue this week so get ready for lots of inspiration!
I decided to case one of the peacock cards on page 7 of the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.
I kept pretty similar to the original although I did the background card in Lemon Lime Twist and used the Burlap stamp to create some texture on the background. I stamped the peacock from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set, in Bermuda Bay and Fresh Fig.
I used the Eastern Medallion thinlits which I had forgotten was so lovely! I hand cut the peacock and added a few of the clear epoxy shapes on the tail.
I then added some of the glittery Myths & Magic Specialty washi tape across the bottom and made a little banner using the sentiment from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set.
Next up is my lovely friend, Rose.
Make sure you join in with the challenge this week and share your project with us on our Facebook page.
Enjoy hopping around and have a great week!
Stampin’ Up! Product List
It’s been an exciting time at CTC this week. We are welcoming 7 new Crew members to the team. A big welcome to Fi Cobbin, Rose Packer, Alisa Tilsner, Megan Lenske, Peta Stephen, Sandra Collett and Angela Meiritz-Reid!! They will start joining in with the hops over the next few weeks, so make sure you say hi to them!
This week we are casing the Thanks section, pages 126 – 131, of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.
As I was flipping through this section, as soon as I saw the card on page 129, I knew which one I was doing for today! I love the Eastern Palace bundle, especially done in light colours.
I have cased the card on the right hand side. Now having said I like it in lighter colours, I’ve gone with a darker colour, Tranquil Tide! I love this colour and haven’t used it very much.
I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder. It’s one of the new 3d dynamic textured impressions embossing folders (try and say that fast!!).
I kept the same circle from the Eastern Medallions thinlits as I love these circles! I used the sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and stamped it in Tranquil Tide on Vellum. I also used the matching Eastern gold vinyl stickers.
Of course, my new favourite gold accessory, mini sequins, has made an appearance again!!
Next up, is the amazing Kelly Kent!
